Derby Cathedral is a special place of prayer, worship and hospitality set at the heart of the city.

Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon is an awe-inspiring sculpture that measures seven meters in diameter. It showcases intricate NASA imagery of the lunar surface and is internally illuminated to replicate the moon’s luminosity. The sculpture is complemented by a surround sound composition crafted by the acclaimed composer Dan Jones, who has been honored with BAFTA and Ivor-Novello awards.

This colossal artwork will hang suspended above the nave at Derby Cathedral, offering a captivating experience to visitors. The exhibition will be open to the public from 12 October to 10 November.

During the exhibition, entry to the Cathedral during daylight hours will be free of charge. However, a suggested donation of £3 per person is kindly requested to support the maintenance and activities of Derby Cathedral, ensuring its accessibility to all.

For individuals seeking a more serene visit, designated quiet time slots will be available every Tuesday and Thursday from 09:00 to 10:30. During these periods, the music will be played at a lower volume, and the number of visitors will be limited.
